Alcohol Elimination And Absorption California

UNDERSTANDING ALCOHOL ELIMINATION & ABSORPTION

California Alcohol Elimination & Absorption Legal Defense

The process by which the human body absorbs, distributes, and eliminates alcohol is important to understand in a driving under the influence (DUI) case. Blood and breath tests will read differently from one person to another even when they have identical amounts of alcohol due to variances between how their bodies absorb alcohol. With this in mind, you can be arrested for a DUI when you are entirely sober just because the police assume the average person would be intoxicated in your circumstance.

Attorney Jacqueline Goodman of The Law Offices of Jacqueline Goodman in Fullerton applies her extensive knowledge of alcohol absorption and elimination to every DUI case she takes. The prosecution is often not prepared to go against someone with so much knowledge about the science behind intoxication, giving her clients an edge in their cases.

Criminal cases are often complicated. There are two sides to every story, and it is important that the court sees the situation clearly. We can help defend you in your criminal case and make sure your perspective is heard.

WHAT IS ALCOHOL’S RATE OF ABSORPTION & HOW IT AFFECTS THE BODY?

Once alcohol is consumed, about 85% of it enters the esophagus, stomach, and small intestines before eventually finding its way into the bloodstream. Elimination occurs as the alcohol is burned off through breath, urine, oxidation, and perspiration.

Because alcohol is eliminated from the bloodstream at a fairly constant rate, how intoxicated a person becomes is largely dependent upon the rate of absorption. Rapid absorption means a faster spike in a person's blood alcohol concentration (BAC) level, which causes impairment of mental and motor functions.

Absorption rates vary widely based on who drinks the alcohol. Typically, prosecution criminalists will ignore scientific articles about alcohol absorption variances and will testify that a person may absorb the alcohol in the first 15 minutes of consumption. The reality may be that the absorption rate is much different, though.
